"Bigamists are devious con-artists "
Bigamists are devious con-artists who wield the powerful weapon of love to become intimately involved with their victims only to leave them in emotional and financial ruin.
Bigamy is a felony in most states, but it's up to the courts to decide what price must be paid. Law enforcement officials agree that bigamists are hard-core criminals without feeling for their victims.
INVESTIGATIVE REPORTS: INTIMATE DECEPTION explores this cruel and all-too-common crime with three cases. In one, a handsome model married four women at the same time, however he reaped little financial gain. Another man married three women in less than a year while still married to a fourth.
Another, now in prison, was never prosecuted for bigamy but for fraud. He confesses to the camera that his crimes were for neither love nor pleasure, but only for money. One woman claimed he stole $26,000 from her after a six-week relationship.
The investigation features interviews with the bigamist convicted of fraud, seven victims, a police psychologist, police officials and a convicted bigamist.
